The memorial service for Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona, who was fatally shot Thursday while responding to a routine car collision in downtown Davis, is slated for Friday at 11 a.m. at the Activities and Recreation Center on the UC Davis campus.
Police say Corona, 22, was ambushed by Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, who rode up on a bicycle before shooting Corona then indiscriminately firing at a passing bus, a fire truck and a firefighter who also was responding to the collision.
Limbaugh, 48, later retreated to his apartment near Fifth and E streets, where he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said. There, officers found a note Limbaugh had typed on a computer that said, “the Davis Police department had been hitting me with ultra sonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking. I notified the press, internal affairs and even the FBI about it…they have continued for years and I can’t live this way anymore.”
Corona was a rookie officer who graduated from the policy academy six months ago and completed field training two weeks ago to work solo as a patrol officer. Her death is the first on-duty police officer death in Davis in nearly 60 years.
